We're gathering to pray on Wednesday June 7, 8 - 9 PM at Cornerstone College.
While we pray in all sorts of ways and on all manner of occasions, it is especially good to join together in prayer. Gathering as a church to pray gives us an opportunity as a family to bring our concerns to God, and to join with each other in thanking God for his goodness to us! Of course, lots of Christians also find it really encouraging to listen to others pray, and to learn from the prayers of other believers.
And you can be part of it!
Please join us Wednesday June 7, at 8 PM, in Paideia at Cornerstone College, where we meet on Sundays. There will be no evening TMB Bible Studies during the week of Monday 5th - Friday 9th June. All groups will be joining in the Prayer Gathering.You'll be able to pray for a range of areas in our church life and beyond, sing some songs, enjoy quietness for reflection and prayer, and be encouraged through the prayers of others. You can pray out loud, or not. And if you come 15 minutes early, at 7:45, coffee will be served!
Our children's programs will resume on Sunday, February 5, which means it's time for parents to complete a new ChildSafe Medical and Personal Information Form.
Please click on the links below if you have children in Kids' Church, Creche, GiG or Youth Group at TMB. You can complete the forms on your computer or by hand, and bring them with you on the first day of the program. Hard copies are also available on the Kids' Church desk on Sunday.
Please contact the office if you have any queries.

Easter picnic & egg hunt
We'd love members and guests to stay at Cornerstone after our service on April 9 for a social picnic and children's Easter egg hunt.
We'll have a sausage sizzle on offer or you can bring your own lunch.
The fun will begin at about 12.30 PM.
Christian people routinely find that the best thing they can do for their own spiritual growth is to read the Bible regularly. And we shouldn't be surprised! We believe the Bible is God's Word and that it's through the Bible that he promises to speak to us today.
At Trinity we're using a simple pattern of reading the Bible for ourselves 5 days a week, with the help of the acronym SOAP.
S. Scripture. Simply read the passage! You can see the current SOAP readings to the right, or on the left column on any page on this website. If you're on Facebook, follow the TMB page to see the weekly readings in your newsfeed.
O. Observation. What do you observe in the passage?
What stands out?
What surprises you?
What makes a lot of sense?
What doesn’t seem to make much sense at all?
Some people like to journal, that is, to write down their questions and observations. SOAP journalling pages are available on the Welcome Desk on Sundays for you to collect if you think you'd find them helpful.

Family Advent Readings & Activities
We've printed a new booklet to help you prepare for Christmas. You can follow the plan by yourself or involve your whole family. This booklet, Genesis to Jesus, has been prepared by Wendy Lin, and gives you daily Bible readings, prayers, points to consider and optional activities that aim to help you see God's unfolding plan of salvation throughout Advent.
You can download the 2016 Family Advent Readings and Activities booklet here or collect one from the TMB Office, or from the Welcome Desk at our services on Sundays.
Impact Youth Camp
Youth in years 7 - 12 are invited to attend Impact Youth Camp 2017 at Victor Harbor on the March long weekend.
They'll join youth from Trinity Hills and Trinity South Coast to study, discuss and take part in activities focused on 'Ruth: Under the wings of God'.
Duncan Andrwes will be the guest speaker.
The camp starts at 5 PM on March 10 and finishes at 2.30 PM on March 13.
Register by February 19 for the early bird rate of $170, or pay the late lizard fee of $195.
Please see Matt Kerrison or Clayton Fopp if cost is an issue, as we don't want this to stop you from attending.
See the Impact 2017 event page to register and find out more details.
Deuteronomy: Living by faith under God's promises
In this new series, we're going to be doing things a bit differently from normal - rather than the usual practice of "continuous exposition" ie opening up a book of the bible, starting at chapter one, and making our way through it in entirety, we'll instead be considering what it means to live by faith under the promises of God by looking at the parallels with the Israelites on the edge of the Promised Land, as they hear about how to thrive in the land "flowing with milk and honey", as told in Deuteronomy 5 - 8. There will also be some Christian reflections because we are privileged to live after the first coming of God's own Son.
You can download the Bible study guide here or collect one from the Welcome Desk on Sunday.
Join us at TMB with Geoff Lin from November 13.
TMB turns 7
We'd love to see all our members on February 26 to celebrate TMB's 7th anniversary.
We'll serve cake and coffee after the regular service to show our thankfulness to God and to you, the people who call TMB your church home.
We also welcome guests and would love to meet you/see you again.
TMBers and guests are warmly invited to attend our TMB Picnic on the lawns of Cornerstone College on Sunday, November 13. The outdoor fun will begin after our service, from about 12.30pm.
Please BYO everything you'll need for lunch, including food, drinks, chairs and blankets. You can also buy your lunch from one of the nearby takeaway stores and bring it back to Cornerstone.
